Rand Paul Says Fauci Wants ‘Submission’

On Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul continued his one-man crusade against the White House’s top doctor Anthony Fauci, saying Fauci was mistaken when he recently said he “represented science.”

Paul made his remarks during an interview on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”

Sen. Paul: ‘It is sort of like you are now contradicting the all high priest of science if you say anything’ about Fauci

Paul said many of Fauci’s COVID-19 pandemic dictates have not been “based in science” and were “more about submission.”

Paul said, “It’s sort of a way of ending all debate because if you attack him or have any debate over any of his edicts or mandate, you’re attacking science. This is a very, very dangerous sort of idea, the idea that a government bureaucrat represents science and that he is now untouchable.”

Over the weekend, Fauci made the astonishing claim that Republican criticism of him was merely a stand-in for an ‘attack on science,’ because Fauci ‘represents science.’

“Anybody who’s looking at this carefully realizes that there’s a distinct anti-science flavor to this, so if they get up and criticize science, nobody’s going to know what they’re talking about,” Fauci said.

“But if they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci, well people can recognize that there’s a person there, so it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science.”

Senator Paul, a medical doctor, said, “It is sort of like you are now contradicting the all high priest of science if you say anything. But there are the real questions, and there’s real areas of science that he’s never really debated because he deflects.”

The Republican senator continued, “One area is over 100 million Americans have had COVID. They have natural immunity. There’s a real question about whether they should be vaccinated once, twice or not at all.”

“And the thing is there’s never been any debate because he’s the all-powerful scientist, you’re not to question him, just do as you’re told,” Paul said, adding, “So with him, it’s more about submission.”

Paul On Fauci: ‘Most of his edicts are not based in science’

“Whether kids should wear masks in school is a very debatable subject and ought to be debated. In Sweden, no kids wear masks, 1.8 million kids, they haven’t worn masks in school at all for the last two years, and they haven’t had any deaths. And you say what about the teachers? Well, it turns out the teachers don’t get COVID at a greater rate than the rest of the public. So, it turns out maybe we don’t have to have our kids in masks.”

“Shouldn’t we have the debate?” Paul asked. “No, Dr. Fauci says he is the all-powerful Oz, and we shouldn’t question him.”
